    The Revo's are a good tire but if you drive agressive you can only expect about 30,000 out of them, I have owned 3 sets and they were all rotated every 5,000 miles, the wear was even all the way across the tire so it is not a air pressure or rotation problem.

    I will be switching to something else the next time I purchase tires. $180 each is just too much for a 30k mile tire.

    I had the Silent Armors and they were excellent. Even wear, lasted for a good long while even with my heavy right foot, and stayed balanced. I'd recommend those and the BFG A/Ts primarily.

    I'm running Silent Armors on my truck right now & have done all 4 seasons with them (12k). I've liked them in all conditions, can't really say on the wear yet, but have rotated them twice & no balance/vibe issues.

    The Revo is a very nice tire & as 05TRD reported in the new Consumer reports issue, all truck/SUV are rated with the REVO the topper. When I picked the S.A.s, I did so for many factors. I had good luck with Goodyear, a set of factory 31" wrangler oems on my old 95 Toyota truck lasted me well over 60k. A couple of guys on the forums were running the S.A.s and liked them, so I tried em out.

    You will probably get a lot of REVO fans for good reason so ultimately the choice is yours.
